Sexism and beauty

The Britney Spears discussion has reminded me of something else that galls me.

Think about all the ugly male rock stars out there. They're everywhere. Now can you name one female rock star (besides Janis Joplin, she's the exception that proves the rule) who isn't drop-dead gorgeous? A woman may well have the talent, but she can't suceed if she doesn't have the looks. And the music industry (and the entertainment industry in general) will promote a beautiful but talentless woman over a not-so-pretty, but wildly talented woman any time.
